WARPED TOUR 2010 

Attention spaced cadets, punk-rock stormtroopers and unidentified frying objects in need of sun block: It’s time for the only tour that matters. This year, we’ve logged quite the flight manual for followers of the Vans Warped Tour. Profiles with cover stars ALKALINE TRIOANDREW WKBRING ME THEHORIZONEMAROSATHE ROCKET SUMMERVERSAEMERGEFOUR YEARSTRONG and WE THE KINGS? Check. Exhaustive list of everybody playing the tour? Check. Old-school props to the Legends stage? Check. Introduction to the first-ever AP/Advent stage? Check. Get fired up, but leave your moon boots at home. Seriously, those things are ugh… 



FEATURES >>>

DEFTONES

For more than two decades. Sacramento, California’s finest have kept the bar high for both heavy music and alt-rock. Tragic circumstance has only strengthened their conviction. 



THE READY SET

Can a Midwest kid with a laptop, a Pete Wentz endorsement and nice hair be the scene’s next big thing? 



THE YOUNG VEINS

Ryan Ross and Jon Walker walked away from the fiscal certainty of Panic! At The Disco to follow their ’60s jangle-pop bliss. Are they crazy? Or punker than you? 



AS I LAY DYING

AILD chairman Tim Lambesis is both a father and devout Christian. Don’t make the mistake of calling him “soft.”
